Season 2021/22 is underway!!
10: Scrappy start
As you’d expect, plenty of rust from both sides during the opening stages. Balls being misplaced and sides guilty of wasting possession.
20: Still all square
Neither team has really threatened the other yet. Only real chance of note was a floated ball to the back post for TNS which Pat Slattery cut out easily.
Blow for East Fife as Sean Brown has to hobble off with what looks like and ankle injury
44: Chance East Fife
Break forward for East Fife and Ryan Wallace tries his luck from range with a looping effort which sails over the bar.
